AFAIK, you have to post-process your PDF file with the program
ppower4.  This program is written in Java, so you probably have to
install Java before.

The \pause command just puts comments into the PDF file which tell
ppower4 how to re-arrange pages.

If you are using TeX Live 2010, you probably have to add


to your source file and run pdftex again.  This turns off object
stream compression, which was invented after ppower4.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
